The @Seinfeld2000 Twitter account is truly a kooky sight to be seen, where everything and we mean everything can somehow be Seinfeld-ized into the present day. Vampire Weekend front man Ezra Koenig has been a devoted fan of @Seinfeld2000 for years and, during a recent episode of his popular Beats 1 radio show “Time Crisis,” he decided to break out into an impromptu croon session of John Lennon’s “Imagine” while discussing the account. How the hell does that relate to Seinfeld though, you ask? Consult the amusingly tweaked lyrics: “Imagine Seinfeld back on TV / It isn’t hard to do / Kramer, George, and Elaine / Maybe Newman too.” He was presumably wearing a Bee Movie T-shirt the entire time, but we can’t say for sure.
